Have you guys heard about the RT Convention? It’s an enormous annual book-lovers event where readers can meet their favorite authors, and authors can attend workshops to improve their craft. On top of that there are parties and games galore, oh my!

This year, the RT Convention will be held May 2013 in Kansas City, MO. That’s a ways from home for me, but I’ll be there, because guess what? I’ll be signing THE COLLECTOR books in the YA Alley. Eek! I’m super excited about the events I’ll be hitting in the coming months. You can see them all on my News page. Are there any events you want me to come to next year? Let me know so I can forward to my publicist. 

In other news, I finished the first draft of THE COLLECTOR book 2. It’s on its way to beta readers. After that, I’ll take a second pass and send it on to my agent. Yay!

Finally, totally off topic, I am loving my new house. There are so many 100-foot-tall oak trees in the neighborhood that it kind of looks like a set for a Michael Myers Halloween movie (beautifully creepy). I love taking strolls along the shaded sidewalks, wrapped in my favorite yellow hoodie, and seeing all the birds and squirrels chase after each other. It’s great for the writer’s mind! In fact, I’m going to go do that now. Have a great day, guys, and remember to make time for strolling. 🙂
